Bali beads are Sterling silver beads which are produced
in Bali,on a small island in Indonesia from a community
in Celuk, These artists are specialized silver craftsmen
from generations,and They are known for their
granulation and wire work decoration. They use very
simple tools and make the silver entirely by hand. They
mix the fine pure silver, copper and metals that will melt
when heated with a torch. After that, the silver will be
poured into a mold to create a sheet or a wire. The silver
is then cut into different shapes and sizes. After it is
formed, they will be cleaned by a solution and dipped
into an oxidixing solution which fills the silver with a dark
colour and highlights the images on a bead.
A limited amount of bali silver is made by casting
because of the nature of the design. Some of designs
also needs both hand skill and the casting process.
Although it is casted, the material used is still 92.5

crystal beads are fired using a combination of quartz
sand and natural minerals, then cooled slowly to avoid
causing stress to the crystals. The high percentage of
lead in all Swarovski crystal beads (32% compared to
competitors 24%) as well as the secret manufacturing
process produces high quality Swarovski crystal beads
with a diamond like brilliance.
